1/20/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 2:3-4 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

This is the point where a large number of religious originations get confused or maybe even led astray. This was a glorious moment. The moment when God showed up and filled His people with the power of His presence. The moment when He showed how close He wanted to be with His people. The moment where He changed His followers forevermore. They saw, with their own eyes, tongues of fire. These tongues fell upon them, and they were then filled with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God. Now this is where some get confused. Those to whom this marvelous event occurred were given the ability to speak in different languages, languages that they did not know, languages they had never studied. This happened so they could interpret to those in Jerusalem, those that had gathered to see what was happening. Some believe this was something different. They believe that this was a type of spiritual talk that was happening. Nowhere does it state this as fact. When the Bible refers to other tongues, it always refers to other legible languages. We must be careful that we do not alter the meaning of God’s Word to fit our beliefs. Instead, we must always alter what we believe to fit the declarations of God’s Word.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see Your Word for what it truly is: Your Word.
